Northern monkey, i wish it were a nice sander. Thats still on the christmas list. WalkingWicket37 your getting warmer.....think Tesco burgers. But yeah, Edge gets the points (for the accuracy of his post) back on page one, DorsetDan too. And James, alexhilly1492 is only about a third right.... a shin bone. Sure, theres a shin in the box. Thats what i asked for when i made the call to a local knackery. "I've just done one this morning mate". Thats handy, great timing i thought. What i found myself holding aloft, walking back to my car with was not at all what i had imagined though....



Giddy-up!  :o





I wont go into great detail of how i made the leg fit into our freezer, or what i must have looked like doing it, except to say, that if the kids had of walked out and seen what dad was doing on the porch that night im certain they'd be scared for life. Anyway, its about tea time over there isnt it? :) Enjoy.

Wow, even though I knew what was coming I still wasn't prepared for those photos 😂 Top dedication @manno, either I'm having some serious dj vu or there is a topic on the forum somewhere on obtaining and preparing a shin bone, may well be worth a search! Enjoy the commitment to preparation before starting shaping bats, if you take the same approach when it comes to the willow I'm sure the bats will be impressive!

YOU werent prepared??? I had to de-hoof a horses leg!! 😂 I think i might have started that thread about prepping the bone. I'll have a search. I think it was suggested that boiling it was the way to go. And i think the linseed bath is an alternative that does the same job, basically just done to break down any remaining meat to leave a clean bone. Im not sure if it does anything more than that but ill still probably soak it for a while after ive cooked horse soup. Just because i can. :) I also have no idea how the bats are going to turn out but, i just hope they will be worth sharing.
